Learning and Study Skills Inventory (LASSI)
LASSI is a tool used in programs as a diagnostic measure to help identify areas in which students could benefit most from educational interventions. LASSI will assess various skills of students including attitude, motivation, time management, anxiety, concentration, information processing, ability to learn/retain new information, comprehension, test prep and test taking strategies.
Based on their assessment, students are then assigned various LASSI modules to improve their academic and personal management skills to increase their success in college.
Those with significant Anxiety scores need to learn how to reduce worrying and attend stress management workshops. Those with poor Motivation scores might attend workshops on Goal Setting. Those with poor Concentration scores need to learn techniques to redirect attention and eliminate interfering thoughts and feelings. Those with poor scores in Information Processing need to learn how to make information more meaningful personally and how to take better notes from lectures. Those with low scores in Selecting Main Ideas need to be taught how to focus on critical information. Those with poor Time Management skills may need to learn how to stop procrastinating and manage their time.
